Understanding virtualwire library?

  • From my understanding virtualwire library transmits a string of characters, right?
  • It can send a maximum of 27 bytes in one message, right? So how many characters can it send then?

Can someone explain to me exactly what a msg consist of when sent using virtualwire library? (For example how many start and stop bit is sent and what else is send with the real message).

thanks

Hasn't this already been answered in your previous thread?

The Implentation Details section of the documentation (http://www.open.com.au/mikem/arduino/VirtualWire.pdf) describes exactly what is sent, and is the same as in your previous thread.
